Energy benchmarking is often the first step to better understanding the energy and water consumption for a commercial real estate property. EBI’s Certified Energy Managers evaluate the building’s characteristics, utility data, and often conduct a site visit. The final benchmarking report includes comparative statistics between the subject property’s consumption and similar buildings. Often this is done in conjunction with Energy Star labelling and local law compliance, like NYC Local Law 84 and Boston’s BERDO program. The end result is the actionable intelligence you need to begin reducing consumption, saving money, and complying with local energy regulations.
